Thought I'd share a little boxing day win. bike stuff is almost impossible to uncover out my way so when I picked up a little local ebay purchase (the lizard brakes) I was very chuffed to uncover a little stash of 80's and 90's bits the sellers shed. Top bloke and a mechanic bitd for Hillmans Cycles in Brunswick.

#1 score has to be this cute little 24" 80's shop branded bike with old xt/suntour/sugino. Hopefully a future project with daughter when she's big enough.

And few NOS goodies and some useful tat.. beater pedals are very welcome. Thrilled to bits with the HITE-RITE/s

I second this, it looks familiar..... best do some research! Looks a bit 'Brotherly' to me.

I thought the same but the quill revealed a generic Japanese logo.. still a spunky 80's stem all the same.
